Surprising absolutely no one that knows me.
Got my copy of the new Parks book from https://standardsmanual.com/ yesterday. The US National Parks Service has had such beautiful photography and graphic design throughout its history. And it’s such a treat to see pamphlets from the parks in my home state of Colorado. There’s one cover for a Mesa Verde pamphlet from 1916!
This is definitely giving the EPA style guide a run for its money as my favorite Standards Manual.
Although this article is mainly about the next release of #Android, the paragraph I found most troubling was buried almost at the end.
I've been saying for a while now that #Apple only cares about your #privacy insofar as they can convince you to buy their phone over a Nexus or Samsung phone. As soon as they think it's more profitable to sell you as a product, they will do it without hesitation. It seems like we are reaching that point.
Before and after of my #bike.
I just finished putting on all the new components I’d ordered so I can ride again this week (didn’t get to ride at all last week). Pretty happy with the way this turned out. Still need to true the wheels and I think I need to take a look at the rear derailleur.
If you don’t hear from me tomorrow, I may have wrecked due to screwing something up with the brakes or pedals. 😅
DHL is fast!
Wow! It’s already in Denver!
Mission accomplished! 🤩
Alright, Mastodon, maybe you can help me out here. I'm trying to figure out how to create a layout for a web page where I have a figure floated right, the right edge of the first paragraph of text overlaps the figure a bit, but then all subsequent paragraphs wrap around the figure (see attached screenshot). I have been banging my head against this for a few days and am ready to concede that it's beyond my skill or perhaps impossible. Any ideas?
